About the ELAC Uni-Fi 2.0 UF52
One of our favorite tower speakers gets a makeover
ELAC’s first-generation Uni-Fi tower speaker was well-loved by our customers, especially for the value it offered for the price. ELAC’s newly updated Uni-Fi 2.0 UF52 floor-standing speaker promises an even better taste of the high-end audio experience at a reasonable price, thanks to the ingenuity of ELAC’s chief designer, Mr. Andrew Jones.
A concentric midrange/tweeter array provides clarity
ELAC has kept much of what made the original Uni-Fi Series so cool, including a concentric driver array that places the tweeter in the middle of the midrange driver. This precise alignment creates a “unified source,” ensuring that all frequencies arrive at your ears at the same instant, producing more coherent and accurate sound.
What’s new with version 2.0?
The Uni-Fi 2.0 Series features all-new drivers. The UF52’s 1″ soft-dome tweeter produces better high- and low-frequency extension than the previous series, for improved blending with the newly designed 4″ aluminum midrange.
Three 5-1/4″ woofers bring the bass
Like its predecessor, the UF52 uses a robust array of three 5-1/4″ aluminum woofers to deliver tight, hard-hitting bass. Each of these new bass drivers uses a cone that’s made from a single piece of aluminum, for better stiffness. The cones, oversized magnets, and large-diameter voice coils allow improved bass accuracy and dynamics.
New crossovers help lighten the load on your amp
The updated drivers, along with a newly redesigned crossover, make the Uni-Fi 2.0 Series easier for your amplifier to drive than their predecessors. They have a nominal impedance rating of 6 ohms instead of 4 ohms, which means they should work better with a wider range of receivers and amps.

3-Way Speaker Design
With separate tweeter, mid-range and bass drivers the Uni-Fi UB52 delivers clean bass without distorting vocals.
Newly Developed Concentric Driver
A new wide-surround tweeter enhances it’s low and high frequency extension allowing for improved blending with the midrange driver. An entirely new mid-range design features a larger diameter voice coil, new aluminum cone profile, new low-profile surround, and an all-new neodymium magnet assembly.
New Single Piece Woofer
A newly developed single piece aluminum dished cone results in improved stiffness. Combined with an oversized magnet, large diameter voice coil, and extended pole piece, these changes result in improved accuracy and bass dynamics.
Sophisticated 3-Way Crossover
An enhanced design improves response linearity, improves driver integration and delivers a true 6-ohm nominal impedance for compatibility with virtually all AV receivers.
Every Uni-Fi 2.0 enclosure is engineered with thick MDF outer walls and a luxurious black ash vinyl finish. Specially located internal bracing adds stiffness and strength to the cabinet’s outer walls, reducing the cabinet vibration that causes unwanted coloration.
